Knights of the Old Republic III: Revenge of the Sith

This is where you can find the story, Knights of the Old Republic III: Revenge of the Sith. It has its own separate page as the story itself was much more involved than its predecessor, Force of Echoes. A lot more research went into this story, including elements that were hinted at in both games, backstories from the Tales of the Sith comics, and a lot is taken from the Star Wars timeline.

This fic, like the other, hoped to bridge the gap between the end of the original KOTOR game and the start of the sequel, The Sith Lords, as well as concluding the second game, which had an ambiguous end. Agent 66 had the hopes of making this a homage to both the prequels and original trilogy of Star Wars, by trying to make an even number of sections, in which they could be grouped together to make three seperate trilogies. Just as in the game and others by Lucas Arts, there are familiar sayings, locations, and characters from the vast universe that began with A New Hope.

This saga is broken into twelve separate parts, with varying pages within each. There are also one shot interludes, which focus on a particular event from a previous chapter. Below are summaries for each part, with the interludes intertwined should the reader wish to read all parts in order of timeline.

VISIONS – Written for one of the contests on the KOTOR fan media site and featured in the April 2009 articles, The Critic Returns from Star Wars Knights and The Critic’s Two Cents at the Lucas Forums, this fic can be considered the precursor before Revenge of the Sith, as it spans the period before the Mandalorian Wars until the end of TSL: The visions that drove all that has happened.
